Not paid their salaries for seven months, seven workers of a personal firm tried to finish their lives by taking poison at a manufacturing facility in Indore, the police stated on Thursday.
They had been taken to the government-run MY Hospital, the place their situation is claimed to be out of hazard.
The employees had been allegedly not paid their wages recurrently over the previous seven months, and so they had been being transferred to a different department.
“Now we have not been given salaries by the administration for the previous few months. That is why our pals consumed poison,” Anil Nigam, one of many colleagues of the boys, stated.
Senior police officer Ajay Singh Kushwaha stated the manufacturing facility staff had not been given salaries for the final seven months.
“They work for an organization which produces uncooked supplies for modular kitchens. They had been even shifted to work in one other manufacturing facility in Banganga. We’re investigating the entire matter,” he stated.
